For years, musicians have written great songs about the open road and the vehicles that follow the white lines around the bend.
And, naturally, sentimental collectors want the cars that remind them of those songs.

A conversation between two muscle car guys can sound positively military, with all the acronyms, slang, codes, and jargon. Imagine how that sounds to others, especially younger types who may be weighing whether the muscle car hobby is the place for them. As they hear a steady stream of odd, head-scratching, and off-putting terms, perhaps too many decide to stick with collecting Star Wars action figures and Fruit Ninja video games.

Albert Galdi of Somerset, New Jersey, has modified and restored a pretty extensive inventory of cars over the years, taking underpowered rides and turning them into high-horse street brawlers, each reformed with the addition of some extra punch under the hood. He became infatuated with the GM big-block rides of the muscle car’s heyday and is a devout follower of Chevy’s highest-performing models. Tops on his must-have list were the ones of the COPO and ZL1 variety, but finding one that he could afford became a great challenge. He did eventually score, restore, and still owns a real COPO Chevelle. However its value and scarcity make it difficult to drive and enjoy the way he wanted to do
